washed up

I've made a mold for my robot hands, I'm just using whats quick and and available so it's made out of silicone.  Probably not ideal as its going to be a silicone on silicone mold, but I'm assured that as long as I spray on lots of J wax (or whatever release agent in the cupboard) it should be okay.

I didn't mix some of the catalyst into the silicone well enough so it didn't go off.  Luckily one of the more experienced maintenance crew was able to save it (you can see the colour…

washed up

We're just winding down on a new series at work and its becoming unusually quiet, so I came up with a really simple idea for a short mini series.  The idea was to make it as simple as possible, one set and a couple of easy to make characters.

My idea was about a robot and a crab living on a small remote island, so I quickly mocked up the robot character.…

TOM BAKER - CINEMAGIC MODEL MAKER EXTRAORDINAIRE!

Howdy - I am following up on a very old thread regarding Tom Baker - the very skillful animation model maker that used to advertise his wares in the back of certain monster magazines.  I wonder if anyone has found Tom - he dropped out of the scene rather abruptly.  I knew him back in Charlotte when I produced a TV show called THOSE WERE THE YEARS on Channel 3 WBTV.  We ran a film contest and Tom won with some unusual animated shorts.  He also created a 30 second TV spot in black and white…

the haunted carousel

The old carousel sits quiet now, in darkness, the shining coats

a clock tower strikes the midnight hour, 

suddenly the old carousel begins to move spinning…
